Roughhouse R50

Roughhouse owner here. Bought it with 4000 miles, nearing 6000 now.
Scooter is completely stock.

However I noticed my spark plug tip looks kind of white. Indicating a hot and/or lean condition during combustion correct? I've read the spark plug reading guide but since this a stock scooter, I wanted to confirm if it's normal.
It runs fine,although it seems to have more power off the line after startup (or during first 5 minutes of riding) than after a 15 minute commute. Normal?

It was derestricted by the dealer when bought new. So if it needed a jet change,wouldn't they have done it?

Stock main jet is 75?

Dealers don't re jet to derestict. They only a washer in the exhaust header and another in the variator
According to the on line parts guide it has a 82
The Buddy uses a 75
If it runs good don't worry!
